Good morning, all! I just realized I didn’t even do a Favorites post for August! Oops. ☺ Oh, well, I’ve got one for September, so here we go!

First is nail care. This one might sound a little strange, but here it is: toothpaste. Specifically, the Crest Baking Soda & Peroxide Whitening Toothpaste. No, this is not a dental blog; this toothpaste is for nail whitening. I realized that Bubble White, the nail whitening product I’d been using in the past, wasn’t agreeing with my skin. So, I searched for other ways to rid nails of staining and keep them looking healthy. And now I brush my nails! 🙂 When I don’t have polish on, I use an old toothbrush and whitening toothpaste to clean them. I will also let them sit with toothpaste smeared on top for 3 to 5 minutes on occasion. Highly recommend this method!

Onto nail polish! First is “Coconuts Over OPI” from their 2017 Fiji Collection. This is my perfect light brown/beige and I’ve been using as a base for a bunch of manicures this month. It has a great two-coat formula and it’s really pretty! Check out my full review of this collection HERE if you’re interested!

Next is a no-brainer if you visited the blog this Monday. It’s “Berry Good Looking” by Cupcake Polish, a fabulous indie brand. This has a gorgeous one to two coat formula with a stunning holographic finish that stops me in my tracks whenever the light hits it. Read more about this beauty HERE.

Another holo goodie is “Champagne for Breakfast,” also by OPI, from their Breakfast at Tiffany’s Collection from last year. It’s a delicate and pretty scattered holographic glitter topper that I feel like I used a lot this month. Very pretty!

Come to think of it, I purchased more polish and swatched them than I actually used this month, so that’s why I only have a few things to show you. ☺ And finally here’s three more favorites that I talked about in my Recent Favorites Part 5 post HERE.

Okay, now onto un-nail-related faves. This first one is “Birthday Suit” by Tarte Cosmetics. I have this in a mini and I want a full size as soon as it’s gone. This is a beautiful nude/muted rose beige with a gorgeous matte finish. This is a liquid lipstick from their Tarteist Lip Paint line with a wand applicator and black cap. It’s so cute and pretty is my new all-time-favorite lipstick! 🙂

And now here’s my first un-nail/beauty-related item (I actually have two this month): this really lovely and chic choker necklace that was handmade by my friend (thanks, Brittney!) last month. It’s so pretty and simple and adds glamour to any outfit. 🙂

Second, is this GORGEOUS and ADORABLE holographic unicorn pink backpack from Charming Charlie’s. This was a gift from my mom (thanks, Mom!) and I love it so much. Isn’t it cute? So gorgeous!
